Did you know?
  • The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th was in 336, during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine. A few years later, Pope Julius I officially declared that the birth of Jesus would be celebrated on that day.
  • Santa Claus's sleigh is led by eight reindeer: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Dunder (variously spelled Donder and Donner), and Blixem (variously spelled Blixen and Blitzen), with Rudolph being a 20th-century inclusion.
  • Outdoor Christmas lights on homes evolved from decorating the traditional Christmas tree and house with candles during the Christmas season. Lighting the tree with small candles dates back to the 17th century and originated in Germany before spreading to Eastern Europe.
  • That big, jolly man in the red suit with a white beard didn’t always look that way. Prior to 1931, Santa was depicted as everything from a tall gaunt man to a spooky-looking elf. He has donned a bishop's robe and a Norse huntsman's animal skin. When Civil War cartoonist Thomas Nast drew Santa Claus for Harper's Weekly in 1862, Santa was a small elflike figure who supported the Union. Nast continued to draw Santa for 30 years, changing the color of his coat from tan to the red he’s known for today.
  • Christmas 2018 countdown has already begun. Will you be ready???
  • Why do we love Christmas? It's all about the traditions. In this chaotic world we can miss the "good old days." Christmas reminds us of that time.

Cdi official pre order

Recommended Posts

to anyone in the columbus ohio area that is wondering what paul's current Lights are like.. I have 3 sample M6 LED strings that were put their paces the 2009 season and held up like champs.. even buried under a bunch of snow..

I now have those Lights back indoors so if anyone wants to take a look at them, see how they operate connected to a controller or take a set home to try out.. let me know and you can come over to my house and see them....

to me they are of a nice quality construction and I will be ordering a bunch for the 2010 season...

Paul:

I'm going to call in a pretty decent sized order later in the week. Do you have the capabilty to ship by truck? And is it possible to get the order shipped collect freight to where I work? It would be about 20 boxes and figuring roughly a buck per string to ship, as someone mentioned I'm looking at $200+ ups.

im also interested to know if truck shipping is available.. and also how big physically the cases are for the 50,70, and 100 Light sets.. I will also have 20 boxes or so and trying to get an idea if it is best to truck ship or possibly drive out and do a local pick up..

I've not dealt with strobes yet, but would like to for Christmas 2010.

Is the difference between the C7 and C9 LED strobes, the brightness?

What's the general consensus, LED strobes or incandescent?

Has anyone used the colored strobes? If so, how do they look?

The only difference between the C7 and C9 strobes is the base - the stobe is the same.

Paul, Do you sell C9 sockets that fit the Weather-X Zipcord you have as part of the presale? I looked on your website and I only saw sockets for the twisted wire. I wanted to use the wire to make some custom strings for the strobes. Thanks

No we do not - what you would want are sockets to fit SPT-1 wire though.

whats the difference between SPT-1 and SPT-2 wire? im assuming the CDI wire is SPT-1?

-Christopher

Our wire is SPT-3 rated at 10 amps with a UV inhibitor for out door use and fits SPT-1 plugs.

Are you going to have any white wire lights? I have a project that I'm thinking about and the white wire would be great. I guess if you don't I could always tape the LED and then spray paint the wire.

No - it's just too many SKU's to keep up with.

Search the forum, there was a guy who posted how to do that. He purchased a large sheet of foam, stuck the bulb part in the foam the then sprayed the wires and sockets white. Strings looked good.

I only found one vendor that sells white wire and I don't think I want to go with them. I think I'll just spray the wire to conceil them. I'm going with inspiration from EPCOT this year since they didn't do anything at the parks.

Probably a stupid question, but what brand of lights are you ordering this year, Paul?

I'm buying a one piece construction, full wave LED light under the Creative Displays "brand" - These are made in one of the 3 or 4 factories that Holiday Creations uses to make their product.

Isn't Holiday Creations the Walmart Brand?

I don't know that information but. . . I would believe that Walmart is buying direct from some factory.

The ones I have seem at Walfart are NO where near the quality of HC strings.

Unless they are a really low quality HC string, I would say no.
